*S1M-124 Phil Gallie: Prayers—That the Parliament agrees that prayers said at the opening of meetings of the Parliament will be said in line with the traditional Christian culture and faith of Scotland and will be conducted at the discretion of the Church of Scotland.


*S1M-123 # Michael Russell: Lanarkshire Eviction Threat—That the Parliament condemns the actions of Mr Brian Hamilton, the so called ‘Raider of the Lost Titles’, whose present attempt to evict Mr and Mrs Baxter of Auchenheath, Lanarkshire on 23 September, because of a feudal title which was vulnerable to challenge, typifies the suffering caused by leasehold casualties and other anomalies of the feudal system and calls upon the Scottish Ministers to take early action to prevent yet more misery for ordinary people who are blameless but often defenceless in the face of such opportunistic use of the archaic land laws.
